Musee des Automates, Limoux

3.5
#6 of 13 in Things to do in Limoux
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musee des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century.

  • A family of artist invites us to share its passion for beauty, the imaginary and the magic through his creations. His open Studio helps us to understand the amount of work for each controller. At discover by taking the time for this tour.

  • Thousands of hours of work for creations in a place that becomes magical. Of course, the sound of the video isn't very good but when explained us in the workshop, techniques and the thousands of hours of work that represents each creation, can not be that admiring of this family passion that us is shared.

  • Nice tour for the costumes, the music, but nothing transcendent. No explanations for the scenes that are presented to us. a written explanation would be welcome, it is unclear that represent automata (we guess). A little maintenance would be especially welcome in the video room. The place lack of heating, it's very cold there. See all the same and have a little time to speak with the people involved in this museum.
